Chocolate & Vines
When Chocolate & Vines proprietor Michael transformed the first floor of his historic home into a wine bar, he strove to preserve the space’s sense of domestic comfort: stenciled wallpaper and crystal-draped chandeliers adorn the sunlit dining room, where guests can cruise free WiFi.
This sense of delicate grandeur matches Chocolates & Vines sugary treats: chocolate truffles’ glossy shells are laced with intricate designs, and cakes sport tufts of mousse and layers of mascarpone. Servers are happy to recommend flavor pairings from Chocolate & Vines’ menu of artisan wines and craft beers. Alternatively, guests can opt to sip French-pressed coffees and herbal teas.
